What are the best sniper rifles in Warzone? There are few things more satisfying in Warzone than a long-range headshot. Or a short-range headshot, really, but watching your bullet arch as it travels hundreds of meters before embedding itself in your mortal enemy elicits a primal satisfaction that nothing else can match. With that, you’re going to need the best kit if you want to perform to your maximum potential, so we’ve built a list of the best sniper rifles in Warzone.

With Warzone Season 1 now in full swing, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to sniper rifles. There were a few sniper additions with the MW3 release, all of which are extremely potent for different reasons. There is also another deadly option available to unlock in the Season 1 battle pass. Here are the best sniper rifles to use in Warzone.

The best sniper rifles in Warzone

Here are the best Warzone sniper rifles:

  • Longbow
  • KV Inhibitor
  • MCPR 300

Best Warzone snipers: a long rifle with a large scope.


A bolt-action sniper rifle with controllable recoil and a high rate of fire, the Longbow can decimate entire teams with little effort. Further lowering the recoil and increasing this sniper’s effective range will spell death for other squads. The best Longbow loadout for Warzone is:

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: Pro-99 Long Barrel
  • Stock: Smooth Fire Sniper Stock
  • Rear Grip: Citadel Grip
  • Ammunition: High Grain Rounds

Another bolt-action rifle, only the KATT AMR has a much slower bolt cycle rate; follow-up shots will be more difficult, putting more emphasis than ever on hitting as many as you can. It’s for this reason that the most optimal loadout for this sniper focuses on damage, bullet velocity, and idle aiming sway. The brutal power of the KATT AMR makes this sniper rifle the most effective in Warzone right now, especially when you utilize our setup. The best KATT AMR loadout is:

  • Muzzle: RK Nightfall Suppressor XL
  • Barrel: Zang-34 Barrel
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Rear Grip: Phantom Grip
  • Ammunition: High Grain Rounds

Best Warzone sniper: a large rifle, with a wooden stock.

KV Inhibitor

A semi-automatic sniper rifle, the KV Inhibitor can deliver a lot of damage in a short amount of time. Being able to adjust your aim while firing is important to keep the pressure on your opponents, with attachments focusing on recoil control being vital in achieving that. The best KV Inhibitor loadout is:

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor L
  • Barrel: KAS-10 584mm Mod Barrel
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Stock: KV Heavy Padded Stock
  • Rear Grip: True-TAC Grip

Best Warzone sniper: a rifle with a very long barrel and large scope.

MCPR 300

A MW2 sniper rifle, but one that still hits incredibly hard, and has the longest effective range out of anything on this list. Due to the distance that you can theoretically engage with the MCPR 300, the optimal attachment setup focuses on increasing range, bullet velocity, and lowing idle aiming sway. The best MCPR 300 loadout is:

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor L
  • Barrel: 22” OMX-456
  • Laser: Schlager PEW Box IV
  • Stock: Cronen Lion Stock
  • Ammunition: High Velocity

Those are the best sniper rifles in Warzone right now. While having extreme range – and extreme power – is great in the BR, you’ll need a plan B for when things get a little tight. We suggest the best Rival 9 loadout; a highly-mobile SMG that can also deal huge damage. If the Rival 9 doesn’t quite suit your playstyle, we also have the best Warzone guns here so you can choose for yourself.
